Roadshow Climate Neutral & Smart Cities – Building & Infrastructure Technology Club

16 april @ 10:00 am - 6:00 pm UTC+0

On Tuesday 16 April 2024, Agoria organise a next event as part of their joint initiative, together with our sister organization FME: The Agoria-FME Roadshow Climate Neutral and Smart Cities.

Do you have services or products that can contribute to the realisation of climate-neutral and smart cities?  Join us on the 16th of April and discover the challenges of the city of Antwerp.

  • In the context of the European Union’s ambition to develop 100 climate neutral and smart cities by 2030(*), the Belgian and Dutch sector federations for the technology industry, Agoria and FME are joining forces.
  • The aim of the EU Mission 100 Climate Neutral and Smart Cities is to achieve one hundred climate neutral and smart cities by 2030 and ensure that these cities and regions develop as living labs and innovation hubs to prepare all European cities to become climate neutral by 2050.
  • Previous cooperation across national borders between both organisations FME and Agoria learned that working together around common societal challenges such as smart and sustainable cities can result in a win-win situation with added value for all stakeholders.
  • Specifically, with this action we wish to connect the technology industry with a number of Dutch and Belgian cities or regions that together with other European cities made the commitment to become climate neutral and smart by the end of this decade.
  • We are organising a Roadshow with a series of visits to interested parties, cities or regions from Belgium and the Netherlands, which are part of this EU mission.

    As part of the Agoria-FME Roadshow, they will also make a visit to the Flanders Region and more in particular to the Antwerp on Tuesday 16 April 2024. The visit consists of an all day program @ BlueChem Antwerp.

The aim of this joint mission is twofold. First, they want to introduce Belgian and Dutch companies to the ambitions and projects of these cities or regions. Secondly, they want to offer the cities the opportunity to come into contact with the technological developments and solutions that can play a key role in achieving the sustainability objectives and mission: a commitment they have made towards the EU by participating in the 100 climate-neutral cities program.

In short: by setting up this Roadshow, Agoria connect the cities or regions that have the important task of tackling the societal challenge regarding climate neutrality, with the companies, technology & people that can help them do so!
